‘It’s ridiculous’ – Medvedev stunned by Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz In Action

Daniil Medvedev lost his world number 1 status to 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz after the Spanish sensation won the recent US Open. When asked to comment about the rise of the Spanish teenager, Daniil confessed that he is shocked by the level achieved by Carlito.

“He’s the youngest world No. 1 ever, and it says a lot because we had quite a few great champions in tennis’ history.

What he’s done since the beginning of his career is just completely insane. It’s ridiculous. The guy is 19. His tennis level is insane and he knows it.

During the summer, it seemed he was a little bit in trouble. Lost some matches against Norrie or Paul, he had some tough moments.

But then in Flushing Meadows, I mean, the guy plays five-set matches, finishes at 3am, recovers, wins the trophy and becomes No. 1.”
